4 reasons your residential complex needs a window cleaning service

Although many property managers and owners believe regular window cleaning is mainly needed for commercial properties, there are several reasons to hire a regular window cleaner for residential properties as well. Here are some of the most common reasons we are asked to professionally clean windows for HOA’s, apartment complexes, condominium buildings, and other residential facilities:

You want your property to appeal to future tenants.

Professional Chicago Residential Window CleaningThink about the last time you purchased or leased a home—what was the first thing you noticed about the property? Most of the time, curb appeal factors such as balanced landscaping and clean windows serve as a first indicator about how well the property manager has kept up with more important factors such as safe electrical wiring and plumbing concerns. When potential tenants first pull into your complex’s parking lot, you want them to be immediately impressed. A professional window cleaning service can ensure your windows remain bright, clear, and streak free at all times.

You want each unit to look uniform and clean.

In upscale neighborhoods governed by homeowners associations, you will find requirements dictating how tall the grass can grow, what features can be placed in the front yard, and what renovations can be made to the houses. Many apartment and condo complexes will even go so far as to require residents only hang up window curtains and drapes that are white on the back side. All of these restrictions are placed with the intention of keeping a look of uniformity and cleanliness to the complex. Why should the cleanliness of your windows not fall into this same category? Even though many residential homeowners and renters take it upon themselves to thoroughly clean their own windows, some will only clean the inside of the panes, and you can never be sure how often the residents plan to wash them. Hiring a professional window cleaning company ensures uniformity across all the glass in your neighborhood.

You may have accessibility issues.

Chicago Window CleaningAs we mentioned, many homeowners and renters are capable of cleaning their own windows, so long as they have the motivation to do so on a regular basis. However, some residents are simply unable to keep their windows clean. Trees or landscaping features may prevent ground floor residents from being able to access their windows. In many apartment and condo buildings, some windows are impossible for tenants to reach due to their height. Fortunately, Innovative Window Cleaning keeps equipment such as swing stages and Bosun’s chairs on hand to reach even the most inaccessible of windows.

You want to protect your investment.

Windows can be very costly, especially when you factor in the cost of installation and potential repairs as the glass and frames age. Regular window cleaning can help protect your window panes against permanent stains from air pollutants and dirt, as well as corrosion of the window frames. If left untouched for long periods of time, substances such as cigarette smoke, sand, dirt, tree sap, and air pollutants from the city can stain window panes. While these stains can usually be removed by professional cleaning services, regular cleaning appointments can help prevent them from forming in the first place. Window frames also need to be washed regularly to prevent oxidation, sprinkler systems, and acid rain from staining them with ugly black and brown spots.
